Joe the Plumber is not license as a plumber, so I guess this is a side hustle. I wonder if his daytime job is being an operative for the Conservative Radio Talk Shows & FOX News.
Why is Joe worried about his taxes, because obviously he doesn’t pay his taxes.
Joe Wurzelbacher is your typical “White Working-Class” guy who often is the target of the GOP. Joe was in attendance at an Obama rally near his home when he asked Barack whether his tax plan would keep him from buying the business that currently employs him, which earns more than $250,000 a year.
But the viability of citing his favorite plumber has been challenged by state authorities in Ohio after it emerged that Joe Wurzelbacher does not have a plumber’s license and owes nearly $1,200 in back taxes.
